Hello and Happy Tuesday!
I am on week 3 of the weight loss program. Last week, I didn’t have a chance to write a posting about my progress. I didn’t gain or lose so I suppose I was continuing to make some good decisions.
This week I have gained 1.5 pounds. I seem to be going in the opposite direction. That has made me stop and think about what I am doing wrong, or not doing.
As I wrote in my last posting, this past week has been pretty stressful! And I noticed something, I tend to eat comfort food and eat it late when I am stressed. Can anyone else relate to that?
That is something at least – realizing the triggers for eating the bad food choices. I still have much work to do but I feel that is a good step.
Another problem, since things were so crazy this week, there was little time to exercise. I have come to realize that this must be scheduled in my day in order for me to do it and then turn it into a habit.
I will spend this week continuing to improve my habits and my routine. I want to continue to stay aware of what I am eating and my exercise. All I can do is try each day and if I stick with the lifestyle change, I will lose.
I wonder if I can handle my stress better this week — with exercise instead of the old standby munchies. I am going to try each day and see what happens. I just have to realize that some weeks will be harder than others and that’s okay. True and lasting change takes time.
